Full Service Custom Home and Remodeling Design
Our Full-Service Custom Home and Remodeling Design option is our highest level of construction design service. For many of our clients, there is no bigger investment than one’s home. Building a custom home or remodeling an existing one involves hundreds of decisions, each affecting the functionality, esthetic, and value of your home. Through our proven design process, we design with three major principles in mind:
Fulfilling your functional and esthetic wants and needs by creating a thoughtful and cohesive design.
Honoring the architecture of your home to design a timeless and enduring environment.
Collaborating with your General Contractor, architect, and other tradespeople to streamline the construction process, resulting in a beautiful, high-quality product.
We specialize in assisting clients who want a thoughtfully designed home that is classic and beautiful. Pinterest and other social media platforms make it easy to get swept up in design trends that don’t stand the test of time, resulting in a home that dates quickly. Our emphasis on timeless design principles helps clients make the most out of their investment. We create classic and functional spaces by focusing on architectural detail, the use of high-quality materials, and the wants and needs of our clients.
All projects begin with a complimentary, 20-minute Discovery Call. During this call, we discuss the scope of your project and determine the level of service required.
Then we schedule your Initial Consultation and provide you with our New Client Welcome Packet and Client Questionnaire. You also get access to our exclusive client portal.
This is our kick-off phase! The Initial Consultation is an in-home, 90-minute consultation during which we:
Discuss your wants and needs
Prioritize your goals
Review any preliminary architectural drawings or inspiration
Offer ideas and suggestions
Review our design process.
We are also happy to refer you to a general contractor or architect should you need assistance. Within one week of our initial meeting, you will receive a Consultation Summary and a Proposal for Services. Your acceptance of the Proposal begins the design process.
We understand that collaboration is key to a successful, cost-effective, and timely construction process. Good preparation is essential. We meet with your builder and related trades to develop timelines, budgets, and clear expectations for deliverables and project management.
Conceptual Design Presentation
During our Conceptual Design Presentation, you will receive a design plan that addresses your home’s functional and esthetic needs, including floor plans, mood boards, hard finish options (such as tile, flooring, and cabinetry), lighting, architectural details, and CAD drawings (when applicable).
We will view hard finish samples, as well as discuss any potential modifications to the design plan. 3D renderings are also available and strongly recommended for kitchens and bathrooms.
Detailed Design Presentation
This is the final design plan, including any requested revisions. All products are finalized, including specifications, such as finish and/or color, and are uploaded to your client portal. Product costs, quantities, and estimated lead times (when available) are included.
This is the plan we will use to create your very own magazine-worthy space—one that also addresses both your functional and esthetic needs.
Procurement and Completion
Once approved, we begin the procurement process for all items purchased through our firm. You get to relax while we do all the heavy lifting! We order, track, receive and inspect all trade items (purchased through our firm) in preparation for installation, as well as handle any necessary returns or exchanges. For products that will be purchased through your contractor, such as cabinetry, we perform site visits and communicate with your general contractor and related subcontractors to help ensure that your project is running smoothly and accurately. During this process, we keep you updated with regular email and phone communication. We stay with you through completion, serving as your advocate and guide.
We highly recommend our Full-Service Interior Design package as an add-on option when building or remodeling. This allows us to coordinate hard finish choices and architectural details with your furnishing and décor needs to create a cohesive design. It’s these finishing touches that allow your home’s architecture to achieve its greatest potential.
